Rug repair - How to sew a blanket stitch to secure your rug fringes!

During Christmas break, I wanted to do something not really related to rug cleaning... so how about rug repair? We went for training few months ago and I always wanted to try. I started to remove all the broken wefts. After few hours, I could start to sew a black blanket stitch as the black is the dominant colour on the rug.

It was quite a lot of work. It took me 4 hours for a 4x6 rug but it was really fun!
